" Widely acknowledged as one of the best Premier Cru Gevrey vineyards, Lavaux St. Jacques is on the rocky slope on the far side of the Combe de Lavaux. This means that frost runs off, like rainwater, and the vines ripen better, while struggling with the rocky topsoil. The result is a wine of richness and length. The nose shows earth, almost sappy fruit, and a hint of wood. On the palate it is very fine, very elegant and enormously focused and long. When you are done tasting it, the effect lingers in your mouth, and encourages just one more sip. I really like this one! (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy Buyer)"
